PrintWe had a trip update meeting this past Tuesday and wanted to post the notes and the presentation by our travel agent as a recap and for those that could not attend.

Quick Meeting Summary:

  • Transportation Update: We were able to secure flights at an acceptable price with Southwest so we will be able to fly to New York now… YAY!
  • Trip Dates/Itinerary Changes: To be able to secure the flights we had to change the trip dates from April 5-8, 2017 to April 6-9, 2017 (Thursday-Sunday). The updated itinerary can be found here: Travel Agent Presentation-Updated Trip Itinerary-10-11-16
